Mariposa at Neiman Marcus - Newport Beach Ratings and Reviews
We made a reservation on Open Table through the Dine Newport Beach Restaurant Week page in the Internet. Upon arrival I asked for the restaurant week menu. I was told there wasn’t one. Interesting since the NB Restaurant Week placard was on the table. We were told that we could have the Lobster Salad with soup or the Petit Mignon. When the waiter returned to take our order I showed him the online menu. He said they were not honoring it / we had a choice of the salad or filet, no accompanying salad or soup. We chose not to make a scene. We later overheard the lady next to us asking about the menu and being told there wasn’t one. To top it off, we were overcharged for my salad. Never again - what a disappointment. I contacted Neiman Marcus and was told to call the restaurant. Really?
I absolutely love this place. Always a treat to get to come here with my mother during an afternoon of shopping.
Service was a little sub-par (it was the week before Christmas and busy so understandable) but we still thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
Food was good, ambiance even better.
Always excellent. Shortly after being seated, the courtesy cup of consommé and popover with side of strawberry butter is most welcoming. Many options ... always innovative and delicious starters and entrées. Very friendly and accommodating staff. I usually go for lunch. They serve until 4:00 so occasionally, I take a shopping break and stop in for a cappuccino & dessert. Consistently excellent.
We always enjoy our lunches at Mariposa. Normally arrive around 1:30. Yesterday was earlier and the noise level was awfully loud. We spent most of our meal leaning on the table, uncomfortable just to hear each other’s conversation. That spoiled our reunion.
The food was delicious as usual. Service impeccable. Noise levels disgusting.
I really think there is no better lunch than at Mariposa NM in Newport Beach. So many I know go here to be seen but really there is no more better service or food in the mall. So many creative but also healthful things to choose from. The salads are my favorite. Another fun thing to do is to drop in for an afternoon cocktail and appetizer. Fun!
Ambiance was great and service was good. However crabcakes were only warm, not hot. Main courses case before we were even finished with appetizer and pasta as just a bit over cooked. However, servers were attentive and it is a great place for a lunch with friends
Brought my 92 year old mother here for her birthday lunch which the receptionist knew based on my reservation. While we did not order dessert a small "token" dessert would have been appreciated for my mother's birthday- a simple acknowledgement of the restaurant- especially since we were paying $70 for a lunch for two!!
My friend and I celebrated my birthday! I hadn't been to Mariposa for awhile and will not be waiting so long to return next time. Everything about our experience was enjoyable; the menu, the ladies-who-lunch setting, the service, the delicious food.
I wish I could figure out how to know the schedule for the dining room informal modeling so I can plan to be there! I've called but the hostess could not forecast a schedule. Oh well...
Thank you for a delightful dining experience!
Nice but a bit expensive lunch inside Neiman Marcus. Server was just okay. It took a long time to be waited on and he seemed very overwhelmed. It wasn’t super busy. Food was good not great. The popover and strawberry butter before the meal is always a high light. The kale/sausage soup was just okay. The burger and fries were a good size and plentiful
They must have been having a bad day, because the service was awful. I’ve been there before and had a lovely experience. This time was different. My husband didn’t receive his drink until I was almost done with mine. The restaurant was nearly empty so we couldn’t understand the delay. Food was great, but we had to ask for the broth. It was not brought to us like it usually is. My husband ordered the chocolate chip cookies but the recipe wasn’t provided in the box, but was told they didn’t have it but he could return and they would provide it. That was ok, but after we finished our meal and wanted to leave he had to go find the servers in the back to pay the bill since there was no one around. We had waited. It was close to closing time, but that was unacceptable. I brought my husband here because it was so great when I had lunch there before and wanted to share the experience with him. We were so disappointed! I expected more from Neiman Marcus.
Had not been to Mariposa in so long. I just had forgotten about it. We had a girl's lunch.
the food was wonderful. The non alcoholic beverages were delicious and creative. The atmosphere was wonderful and service was excellent. Looking forward to going again1
I'm vegan and my server sent the chef out to discuss my meal modifications. The salad the chef created for me was one of the best salads I have ever had. I was impressed with how graciously the server and chef handled my food restrictions. They were happy to please me. I will be back!
